Dragon Ball Super 0

THEORY: Universe 6 is Doomed (Thanks Frieza!)

Episode 112 of Dragon Ball Super has me thinking; Frieza will be the one to defeat Universe 6. You may be asking “How so?  How can you be so sure?” Well, this odd theory I have  comes from the fact that the final warriors of Universe 6 are made up of two Saiyans and two Nakemians.  And as well all know, Frieza has a fantastic history with members of those races.

Frieza hates Saiyans.  I’m talking your racist neighbor getting mad every-time he sees those “illegal” Mexicans across the street level of hatred.  The mere sight of those uncivilized monkeys fuels Frieza with great, furious anger.  Frieza wants nothing more but to kill any and all Saiyans – even if they’re from another universe.   Frieza mentions to Cabba that wants to play fun  with Kale and Caulifla.  Frieza, he’s a fan of games with full cooperation from others.  Those are his favorite type of games after-all. Like the classic chocking game.  That’s a game where Frieza wraps his tail around his buddy’s throats, and starts squeezing the life out of them until they choke to death.

He’s also a fan of the game “Shoot people’s pressure points with non-lethal Death Beams Barrages until they’re begging for the sweet release of death.”   I think Kale and Caulifla will become great fans of those games.   It’s going to suck when Frieza decides that he’s bored and stops playing with them.  Maybe he might bring them back with the Super Dragon Balls if Universe 7 wins.  Plus, having two Saiyan monkey girls just means he’s respect diversity and equal gender rights in the work place!

Diversity quotas don’t fill themselves now.

Now, let us imagine Frieza meeting the Universe 6’s Namekians.  Just picture his joy! He’ll become so happy that Universe 6 has Namekians too! Frieza will get all warm and nostalgic – reflecting on his youthful days of Planet Namek.  Days where he made those green people bow at his feet. Ahh, that was a great period in his life.  Shooting Dende in the head. His troops hunting and killing the lot of them.  Ripping that one Namek who look like Piccolo arm off.  I think his name was Nail or something I dunno they all look alike. Frieza strikes me as a fellow who loves reliving his glory days of being a ruthless dictator on Namek. I mean, look how happy Frieza was when he was healing Goku.  It brought back lovely memories of Namek.  I hope him meeting those Nameks of Universe 6 will re-spark that happiness once more.

Here’s where my theory comes to play.

It’s strange that the final four warriors of Universe 6 include members of  two races that Frieza has a past relationship with.  In the past five episodes or so, Frieza was given some shine story-line wise. We can assume that Toei wants to build some focus on Frieza, the Saiyan girls, and the Namekians (whom were given a little shine in Episode 111).  Before I forget, let me bring reminder you that universes who were shown to have low numbers (sans Universe 11) were doomed to erasure (as we’ve seen with Universe 9 and 10).

See where I’m going with this?

I predict that in the near future, Frieza will take out the Saiyan girls and the Nameks. Therefore, with their elimations, Universe 6 will be erased.  They’ve lost their leader and strongest warrior — Hit.  Their morale is low. Frieza’s hatred for Saiyans has no bond.  He also doesn’t take too kindly to Namekians either.  I may be wrong, but I think Toei is hinting that Frieza will be the one who will slaughter Universe 6.

That or this all a red herring from Toei.  The Namekieans are going to get a Toriyama handjob, the Saiyan girls are going to get a Toriyama finger bang, and get an asspull powerup and defeat Frieza and we’re all being mislead by Toei and Trollriyama.

THEORY: On the Source of Kale and Her “Legendary Super Saiyan” Power (Part 2)

In my last post,  I  explored  bullying as a possible source of Kale’s rage, which served as a catalyst for her faux “Legendary Super Saiyan” state.  Supported by theories such as her  shyness , timid nature, and socially withdrawn, I theorized that Kale may had been bullied in the past, and  bottled her anger of being bullied within her.  Bottled up until Cabba managed to enrage her, sending her over the edge, and triggering her transformation.  Caulifla managed to chill her friend out, telling her that she wasn’t into Cabba romantically (which Cabba  assumed was the source of Kale’s anger from his interactions with Caulifa).  Hearing this, Kale reverts to her normal state and passes out with a smile on her face.  Kale was pleased to know that the two weren’t that close and that her mentor respects her.  Maybe Kale likes Caulifa beyond that of a friendly relationship, and seeing Cabba and Caulfia all chummy with each other might had been the cause of her rage.

Is jealously the true link to Kale’s rage?  Let’s examine this theory!

In the previously episode, Kale is “spying” on Cabba training Cauifla to become a Super Saiyan.  She smiles when Caulifla snaps on Cabba for making her angry.  Kale becomes at awe, amazement ,and admiration  when Cauifla obtains Super Saiyan with ease.  Kale is impressed by her mentor’s achievement, but beats herself up as she states she could never be a Super Saiyan like her.  Later (in the following episode), Cabba and Caulifla are encouraging Kale how to become a Super Saiyan.  Cabba attempts first.  He focus his energy and displays the Super Saiyan form to Kale, who is completely unimpressed by his power.

When Caulifla shows Kale her Super Saiyan transformation, she starts blushing and flash a bashful smile towards her.  It’s clear that Kale is more impressed by Caulifla’s efforts.  Perhaps Kale has a secret gay crush on Caulifla or just really looks up to her.

Either way, Kale has a strong interest towards Cauifla.  Too strong maybe, as Kale ggets rather jealous with Cabba and Caulifla’s interaction.   Kale assume that they’re too friendly just to be that close.    It’s possible that Kale gets jealous quick.  A little too jealous for the good of her friend’s sake, and her own sake.

Kale: The Yandere

Kale’s jealously (and inner rage) hits maximum  when Cabba and Caulifla are trying their absolute damn best to help Kale tap into the power of the Super Saiyan.  After a barrage of insults by Cabba, Kale becomes agitated and discouraged.  She loses hope of becoming a Super Saiyan, telling Caulifla that she’ll never reach that level, and that she’s just an useless and pathetic excuse for a  Saiyan.  Cabba’s words triggered Kale’s emotional state, causing her power to soar. She loses control of all sense and self awareness and finally achieves the Super Saiyan transformation!  However, there’s something  quiet different about transformation compared to Cabba and Caulifla.

Kale transform into a hulking monster, influcned by her rage and jealously.  She focus her attention towards  Cabba, and vows to make him her first victim.  She lunges at the man with furious anger, completely ignoring Caulifla, who seems to be pretty excited that her friend achieve a greater level of Super Saiyan.   As Cabba and Caulifla tries to combat against the berserk Kale,   Cabba theorized that Kale’s  rage is rooted in assuming that  Cabba and Cauifla were a bit wee too close to be just friends.

Caulifla just scoffs at Cabba’s theory and tells Kale that she isn’t so cheap that she would be romantically involved with such a low class Saiyan like Cabba (ouch).  Kale hears this, and stops her attack.  Caulifla then praises Kale, admiring her superior power.  Kale calms down, reverts to her base form, loses consciousness, and falls towards earth. As Kale is falling , Caulifla rushes towards her, catching her in her arms.  Cauilfla praises her friend once more, smiling at her sweetly.  Despite her unconscious state, Kale herself wears a warm smile across her face , happy to know  that Caulifla and Cabba aren’t an item as she originally believed, and her mentor  lauding her power.

With the examples provided, I can conclude that Kale’s initial transformation was inspired by her jealously towards Cabba. She assumed that Cabba was romantically close with Caulifla (whom I can  assume Kale may have a possible crush on).  In addition of Cabba’s insults and her own frustration of feeling useless and fear of failure, Kale unlocked her Super Saiyan form out of pure hatred, jealously, and rage.  Thankfully, with Cauilfla’s calm words of respect, and reassuring her that she does not like Cabba, Kale managed to snap out of her rage.

 

With that all said I hope you’ve enjoy reading my theories on Kale’s power as much as I’ve enjoyed analysiing and writing about it!  Stick around for more theories and thoughts on Dragon Ball and other anime series in the future!
